In a few weeks mothers will be celebrated all over the world. In these times of uncertainty and confinement, we reflect on how we lead our lives. Furthermore, how do we build a legacy for our children? We return to the essentials. Our new “On the Rocks!” campaign features jewels by two brilliant Parisian jewellery designers: Patrice Fabre and Thierry Vendome.
The essential fine jewellery collection:
As we “Precious Moms” mature ; we learn the art of being oneself. By now, we have our own lifestyle with an edge. It becomes easier to know what we want and how we want it. Leading a life according to one’s true self remains the best form of self care. It helps avoid unfounded expectations. It also helps focus on what is right for both our families and ourselves. As mothers, we are never alone in our thoughts. We want to collect things that make us feel wonderful and that are valuable enough to be passed down when the time is right.
Being a mother is hard and wonderful. Motherhood deserves to be celebrated. Naturally, jewels are one of the best ways to celebrate the beauty in life. One creates them with precious materials to keep precious memories!
Evidently, everyone has their opinion on what brings value to their life. Chances are you are thinking of investing in jewellery if you read this article. Jewellery is not an asset that creates revenue like an investment portfolio (arguably, during these times of extreme change). It is, however, a tangible asset made of materials that keep value over centuries. Most importantly, it is an asset that is easy to give to our children. Our diamonds have been around for quite a few million years now and are not about to disappear so quickly. We “Precious Moms” want to invest some of our money where we can see it!
Indeed, just like our art, our home or our finances, a jewellery collection must be build up over time with extensive research. We are careful where we spend our money. We choose jewels we will truly love to wear either everyday or for a special occasion. Rather than following trends we buy pieces that have value over time. As a general rule, the value lies in the design, signature as well as the techniques and of course the materials. At OnlyJewels, expertise is our hallmark. We make it our mission to provide you with thorough information about every jewels in our curations.
So what are the essential jewels for a collection?
DIAMOND EAR STUDS: Adorn yourself with brilliance. Find or have made ear studs with either detachable diamond halos or lower gem piece. Transformable jewels should serve you for daily occasions as well as more spectacular ones.
STRANDS OF PEARLS: the queens of gems are unexpectedly diverse. The exquisite Akoya Pearl, the beautiful and more atypical Tahitian Pearl or the very rare and sought after Melo Pearl and many more. Which ones do you prefer?
ICONIC WATCHES: more than a signature to your style, a watch might even reveal your philosophies on time.
LONG GOLD CHAINS: the most playful of jewels turns into a multi-strand necklace or bracelet and always makes an impression, whether it carries a pendant or not!
BESPOKEN JEWELS: any jewel that celebrates love, a birth or family will probably be one of your most cherished. Therefore, it deserves its own bespoke design.
BROOCHES: whether antique or contemporary, the brooch is a truly versatile jewel. It will dress you up instantly! For a modern look, wear it to close your collar. Place on your shawl with ease the way you like it. Or lavishly place the brooch in your hair.
CHARMS: charms mark moments one feels grateful for. They should be collected to contemplate and remember all the luck and achievements in one’s life!
CUFFS & BANGLES: while worn alone, a bangle or a cuff will look delicate and fine. Worn in multitude, they feel like an armour that makes one stronger!
ACROSTIC JEWELS: Collect gems to spell out a message by the first letter of the gems’ name. Find a gem for a letter in your name in your OnlyJewels.com Box. Every time you make a purchase one more gem will be sent to you. Once your name is complete, we will gift you your acrostic jewel.
